Live at Womb


Published 2008




Gary Fisher
Live at Womb 25/10/08



Live at Womb was recorded on October 25th 2008 at The Britain’s Protection, Manchester and was Gary Fisher’s first ever public live performance as part of ‘Womb’ an event of experimental music curated by Blood Moon. The set consisted of a continuous live, improvised composition lasting around 20 minutes. The piece starts with loops of electric guitar strings being struck, rubbed and scraped with various objects including a metal goblet, drumstick and a fork lodged between the strings and bounced up and down. In the second half a metal tray and drumhead amplified with contact mics are used with a drumstick, plastic bags, wallpaper scraper, screwdriver and workshop brush. the looping process creates a gradually louder hail of feedback that in the end drops out to reveal the sound of a German language tape playing through the guitar pickup.

Subject: WOMB live review by Cath Aubergine<
A review from the event where the Live at Womb recording was made:

Salford-based G Fisher, it's not so much music in the conventional sense as an auditory art installation.

This is G Fisher. And yes, you would be correct in thinking that is (a) a kitchen brush - it's being scraped around on a metal plate into a microphone - and (b) a fork lodged between guitar strings. Other sonic accessories in the Fisher repertoire include a paint scraper and a pewter tankard. The fork makes an amazing sound and altogether Fisher's work is more of a single coherent piece than a collection of strung together sketches. My long-suffering companion describes it as sounding like two squid having a fight over a rusty bicycle, but when I mention this to the promoter he doesn't seem to consider this a bad thing.
